Beer

 

Bancroft Beer   |  2.5 / 4 / 6

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with Pilsner and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punchy notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin with a clean and crisp finish. 4.2% abv


Huy Vietnamese Coffee Stout |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Huy is our rich creamy coffee stout brewed with a plethora of specialty roasted malts and lactose for that thick condensed milky sweetness. Conditioned on the same blend of deep roast coffee and spicy chicory as your favorite pho joint. An homage to our jack of trades, this beer comes in with huge notes of espresso, woody antique shop, brown Jelly Beans, and Belgian bittersweet cacao. *NITRO* 6% abv


A History of Compromise |  3 / 4.5 / 7

American IPA brewed with 2-row, Pilsner, oat, and pale crystal malts. Hopped with liberal amounts of El Dorado, Amarillo, Idaho 7, New Zealand Wakatu, and German Magnum. Wafts of strawberry, heavy MellowSweet melon, and Mandarin orange rind, with smooth flavors of pine resin, Kush, yellow watermelon, and flashes of coconut. 7% abv
 
 

Earth Power  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Earth Power is a rustic IPA brewed with Keystone Pale Ale, Colonial Pilsner, and pale crystal malts from our pals Deer Creek Malt in Glen Mills. Hopped abundantly with some classic C’s from our Northeastern PA outpost Second District Brew Farm – Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, and Columbus. A true celebration of Eastern Pennsylvania terroir, agriculture and brewing heritage, this IPA is more akin to English Style IPA with sweet clean malt and earthy spice notes of bergamot soaked hay and rural woodland treks. A real throwback to our past. 5.8% abv.
 
 

Festbier 16oz can   |  7

To celebrate the season of harvest and welcome in those cool Fall breezes, we brewed up a batch of what is locally known as Festbier in Munich, typically served at their world renowned annual celebration. Bright golden hued in color, Festbier is like the lighter, more sessionable cousin to what we know as Oktoberfest here in the states (Marzen). German Pilsner and Vienna malts come together to form a sturdy, yet drinkable malt base. The German Magnum and Tettnanger hop additions are light, but there to keep those dextrins in check. Fermented low and slow with our favorite lager yeast strain. Bold notes of freshly baked bread, pie crust, and herbed honey. Dry with a pleasant minerality to cut the malt and deliver a quick finish. 5.5% abv.


Apricot Helix   |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Apricot Tangerine hard seltzer/fruit soda mash up. 100% cane sugar based, and conditioned on loads of apricot and tangerine puree. Dry, effervescent, with nuanced layers of ripe nectarine skin, peach rings, and Orangina. We’re not really sure how exactly to classify this one but it’s refreshing AF, bubbly, and delicious. 6.4% abv.
 
 

Wee Buddy  |  2.5 / 4 / 6

An American twist on an English Summer Ale, whipped up with 2-row and oats. Hopped with Amarillo and Wakatu in the kettle and then gently dry hopped with a blend of Amarillo, Wakatu, and East Kent Goldings. A clean and crackery malt profile is balanced with notes of Tetley’s Iced Tea, wisps of orange zest, and rolling rural countrysides. 3.6% abv *Available on NITRO (ask server)*

 
 

Zestimated Antler  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Another day, another heat advisory. Here to help you through it is Zestimated Antler, a cheeky riff on our Estimated Antler Nelson Pale Ale. We took the same base recipe but added a bunch of fresh house processed lime juice and zest. It’s like a Nelson Pale Ale and a Margarita made a lil’ love and had a beer baby. Loads of citrusy coconut and chamomile with a pithy bite. 5% abv

 

Bancroft Beer Citra 16oz can |  6

Traditionally, every year for our anniversary we like to have a little fun and brew a special one off batch of our beloved South Philly banger with the Mosaic traded out for some of our favorite hop varieties. So as part of our ongoing 2021 “non-anniversary” celebration, we’ve brought back one of the versions we enjoyed most! Classic Bancroft crushability paired with notes of freshly chopped weed plants, rising dough, and midsummer hikes through grassy fields. All wrapped up for you in a crispy tight package. 4.20% abv

 

Chifforobe  |  4 / 6 

English Style Olde Ale brewed with copious amounts of malty malts and aged for 6 cool months. Deep, dark, and lush with notes of toffee, dried foraged herbs, and faint wisps of the unknown. 9.2% abv

 

Pinap Attack |  3 / 4.5 / 7

BB IPA brewed for ultimate quaffability with 2-row barley, German Pilsner, and German wheat malts. Hopped with generous amounts of Citra and Galaxy in the kettle and post fermentation. Conditioned on globs and globs of juicy Pineapple puree. Extra crushable with notes of beachside breezes, Dole daydreams, and citrus sunrises. 4.1% abv

 

Big Hill Standard Cider |  5 / 7

Beautiful, straightforward cider from our friends in Central PA
